Hi tgoodwater2002,

A very nice tye. I really like how even you have gotten the angles on the legs. If it was my fly I might shorten the tail a little bit. That is why I always carry scissors on the water. I am always trimming or thinning out my flies while I am fishing.

Frank

Thank you! I got that pattern out of the Fly Tyer Magazine. There is alot of patterns in there to tie. Most of them have step by step instructions too. I don't know how lucky I was to have the first one I did turn out so good.
